John Lennon once said, "Music is everybody's possession. It's only publishers who think they own it."
That didn't stop him from cashing his royalty checks.

Download it! Be subversive!
These are excellent songs, but that's only half the reason you should listen to them. As Hussalonia announced on his web page (hussalonia.com) on July 22, 2013, there's a company called the Royalty Free Institute that's selling these songs as "Royalty Free Rock Music." Selling. As in, they're charging money for something the content's creator is explicitly giving away for free. Here!
So I, for one, plan to never do business with the Royalty Free Institute, and beyond that I encourage you to download the music here - because it's good. And doing so is now subversive.

Just for "This Song Won't Sell A Thing"...
This has to be the anti-anthem of anti-anthems! Releasing it into public domain was the crowning touch! Any sheet music or lyrics?

Meaning Isn't Based On The Importance Of Being, But On The Relationships In Between.
Well, what can I say? I didn't understand the whole lyrics since I'm not a native english speaker, but the bits i got are pretty amazing. Now music is all about tunes as well and even if I'd be illiterate I couldn't help myself and just looooove this music for ever.
